Max/MSP with Adobe Flash interface

Hi all!

i was wondering if anyone could help me out

i want to make a reactable style synthesizer (controlling synth parameters with blocks on a table) and have the graphics on the interface generated in flash.

i was wondering if its possible to have adobe flash controlled by max/msp?

for example when i move the block around the tabletop the graphics produced in flash moves around with the block

is that possible? and if so could anyone point me out to a few tutorials?

Many Thanks

Andy :o)

Best bet is probably via OSC: use udpsend/udpreceive on the MaxMSP
side, and flosc on the Flash side. It’ll require a fair bit of wiring,
plumbing and bricklaying, but it’s possible.

Or, you may want to just investigate doing the graphics in MaxMSP
directly via jsui; a lot less bother.

I’m pretty sure it was Processing that was used, maybe as a controller for Max or pd. You can find more info on reactable from processing.org

Just in case you hadn’t seen that info…

Actually, the reactivision software is available in a number of protocols, including flash, but is mainly for tracking with a camera.

In terms of Flash and music, check out a tutorial I did for Infusion Systems, using a Java MIDI server based on Flosc. The Java server wasn’t able to see Max’s MIDI output, only hardware interfaces, but I didn’t experiment that much.
